(WCMH/AP)–Americans are looking to make a mass exodus north after Super Tuesday, it seems.

Google searches for “how to move to Canada” soared after Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump each picked up seven states, according to one of the search engine’s data editors.

On Super Tuesday, as the returns rolled in, searches for “How can I move to Canada” on Google spiked by more than 350 percent in four hours, Google editor Simon Rogers tweeted.

That number surged as high as 1,150 percent before midnight and settled around the 500 percent mark, according to Mashable. Google said searches for “move to Canada” are the highest in the site’s history.

A social media link posted by Toronto city councilman Norm Kelly that gives helpful directions on how to apply for Canadian citizenship received over 37,000 retweets.

Bruce Arthur, a Canadian sportswriter and political commentator, tweeted this after Super Tuesday: “To my American friends, I have an eight-person tent that I can set up in the forest behind my house but you may need your own air mattresses.”
